About copyrights / biographies and pubmed, I'm aware of a problem before February 2009 (Believe me, I'm deeply sorry).

January 2008[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to Kitasato Shibasaburo, did not appear to be constructive and has been reverted or removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you. Oda Mari (talk) 14:47, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi! I saw your message. First of all, please accept my apology. I'm really sorry that I took your edit as vandalism. Kitasato's birth year is 1853. See these pages, [1] [2] [3] [4] They all say it's 1853. (Even if you don't read Japanese, you can find the date) I didn't see the category when I reverted your edit. But it's obvious that the category is a mistake, you see. Now I'm going to fix it. Again so sorry my mistake. Best regards. Oda Mari (talk) 05:12, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Flags[edit]

Hi Plindenbaum. You eddited a lot of biographies lately and in some you added the flag. There was a consensus sometime ago, that a flag should only be used if it is necesarry like for military personel. We had some stupid nationalist extremist starting editwars about scientists like Copernicus or Prelog and the flag was sometimes a condensation point for stupid people. If it is OK for you, it would be good to leave the flag out of the biograpy table if possible?--Stone (talk) 18:38, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

No problem! It would be no problem with 99% of all biographies, but the 1% kills all th fun! Thanks for your work! Nice to have everything updated!--Stone (talk) 05:08, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

URLs to PubMed[edit]

On James Herrick (and probably elsewhere) you linked to abstracts on Pubmed by placing the URL in the citation. This is usually unnecessary. Simply replacing {{citation}} with {{cite journal}}, and using the "pmid=" parameter in the latter template, will automatically generate a link to Pubmed. Even quicker, David Iberri's template filler will automatically generate a {{cite journal}} template on entering the PMID! JFW | T@lk 16:33, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Ok, changed --Plindenbaum (talk) 19:27, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Image:Replace this image male.svg[edit]

Hello. Please do not add this images to articles that are not living people. There has been consensus that for non-WP:BLPs, this image really adds nothing and is an eyesore at best. By all means continue to do what you are doing otherwise. Thanks, Wizardman 02:34, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

But using this image could used to get an anwser to the following question "What are the articles about scientists who are missing a picture ?". Isn't it ?--Plindenbaum (talk) 10:10, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
I'm not actually sure what you meant by that reply.. the way Isee it, it asks "do you own a pic of this person", which clearly no one is reasonably going to have a pic lying around that they took. Wizardman 03:16, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
... for example, using "Image:Replace this image female.svg" with "Template:Infobox_Scientist" can be used as a metadata about the gender to quickly find the women scientist who are missing a picture (e.g. Lilian_Gibbs Christine_L._Borgman Philippa_Marrack Jacqueline_Barton Ruth_Aylett Ruth_Patrick Byllye_Avery Ayanna_M._Howard Elizabeth_Blackburn Margaret_T._Fuller Cornelia_Clapp Esther_Orozco Linda_H._Aiken Helen_B._Taussig Catherine_Dulac Row_Lewis Suzy_Covey Candace_Pert Audrey_Richards Theo_Colborn Daphne_Koller Karen_Ramey_Burns Julie_A._Leary Francine_Neago Mary_Leakey Stephanie_Kwolek Charlotte_Auerbach Mary_Watson_Whitney Ada_Yonath Tanya_Byron Andrea_Ghez Ruth_Sager Marcia_J._Bates Florence_Nightingale_David Ida_Henrietta_Hyde Lee_Ann_Newsom Marie_Maynard_Daly Rosalyn_Sussman_Yalow Elizabeth_F._Neufeld Mary_Higby_Schweitzer Rebecca_Grinter Amanda_Chessell Shafi_Goldwasser Main_Page Manuela_M._Veloso Williamina_Fleming Mary-Claire_King Ann_Fienup-Riordan Ynes_Mexia Shere_Hite Amy_S._Bruckman Elisabeth_Noelle-Neumann Chien-Shiung_Wu Sara_Seager Shelley_Batts Samantha_PowerMaria_Reiche Lorna_Goldberg Cecilia_Payne-Gaposchkin Katherine_Esau Carol_W._Greider Deborah_Charlesworth Sandra_Postel Catharine_MacKinnon Susan_J._Kelley Marthe_Vogt Harriet_Brooks Cornelia_Bargmann Deborah_Estrin Hattie_Alexander Kathleen_Kenyon ...). --Plindenbaum (talk) 19:30, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Robert Metzenberg (geneticist) bio[edit]

Hi Plindenbaum. I haven't been active on Wikipedia for many months. Today (July 15th, 2008) is the first anniversary of my father's passing (Robert Metzenberg). I happened to search for his memorial page, written by some of his scientific colleagues, and I came upon the wikipedia page you started a few weeks ago. I was very touched that you had started a biography page. It wouldn't be appropriate for me to be involved in writing, but I am happy to answer questions about him and his research, although my brother would a better source. Obviously, I am just too close to the subject. If you see a picture you like on his memorial page, I could scan one for the public domain. Eric Selker's article in Genetics was wonderful. My father never had much interest in being famous. I'll say a few more words in the Talk section there. Metzenberg (talk) 03:15, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

As a copyright violation, Clarence Crafoord/Temp appears to qualify for deletion under the speedy deletion criteria. Clarence Crafoord/Temp has been tagged for deletion, and may have been deleted by the time you see this message.

If you believe that the article or image is not a copyright violation, or if you have permission from the copyright holder to release the content freely under the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL) then you should do one of the following:

  • If you have permission from the author, leave a message explaining the details at Talk:Clarence Crafoord/Temp and send an email with the message to "permissions-en (at) wikimedia (dot) org". See Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission for instructions.

Why ? Can you explain please, I don't see the interest. --Plindenbaum (talk) 08:46, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
Hi Plindenbaum. The temp copy was deleted because it too was a copyright infringement. As discussed on the article talk page, Wikipedia's aim is to provide free content, and text copied from another source (except public domain and licences compatible with GFDL) is not free content. Somno (talk) 09:55, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Edward Long Fox[edit]

Thanks for starting the article on Edward Long Fox.

Speedy deletion of Bronisław Hager[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Bronisław Hager requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Protein interactions[edit]

I am not positive, but I think Yeast2Hybrid is a bot account you set up. I think the work you and/or the bot is doing is great, but I have one small request which I have added to the talk page here. I am notifying you here just in case you miss the message on the Yeast2Hybrid talk page. Cheers. Boghog2 (talk) 09:47, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeast2Hybrid[edit]

Hi... this bot you set up is much less than perfect. For example, on the LNGFR (p75) page, first the interactions were duplicated, and second the entire point of the LNGFR is to bind the various neurotrophic factors (NGF, BDNF, NT-3, NT-4), and yet you on:hly list NGF and none of the other neurotrophins as binding the LNGFR... which is quite confusing to non-experts. Also in other cases the interactions are incomplete, to say the least. Gacggt (talk) 02:23, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment. Hoooopps, sorry for this bug. I've updated the references by searching the content after ==Interaction==, but meanwhile, the header has been changed from ==Interaction== to ==_Interaction_==. I used the 'biogrid' to find the interactions http://www.thebiogrid.org/SearchResults/summary/110870 but I only used the interactions having two or more references to avoid the false positives. --Plindenbaum (talk) 07:54, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Correction of serious misinformation in James Braid article[edit]

Hi, I have requested that the title for the article on James Braid be changed from the inappropriate, misleading, and historically incorrect current title of James Braid (physician) to the appropriate and historically correct title of James Braid (surgeon).

On the basis that you have contributed to the current article in some way, I thought that you should know that the article will be moving within 7 days from James Braid (physician) to the appropriate and correct title of James Braid (surgeon) unless there is widespread, informed, and fact-based objections.

It would be helpful if you could express your support for the correction of what seems to have been, originally, an inadvertent error, at site of the discussion of proposal. Thanks, in anticipation . . . Lindsay658 (talk) 09:36, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

Information.svg Hello Plindenbaum! Thank you for your contributions. I am a bot alerting you that 1 of the articles that you created is tagged as an Unreferenced Biography of a Living Person.

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of BISC (database), and it appears to be a substantial copy of http://into.kobic.re.kr/pubmed/view/id/26201.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

Speedy deletion nomination of Structure atlas of human genome[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Structure atlas of human genome requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about web content, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.png which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. ~~EBE123~~ talkContribs 20:48, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Invitation to events in June and July: bot, script, template, and Gadget makers wanted[edit]

I invite you to the yearly Berlin hackathon, 1-3 June. Registration is now open. If you need financial assistance or help with visa or hotel, then please register by May 1st and mention it in the registration form.

This is the premier event for the MediaWiki and Wikimedia technical community. We'll be hacking, designing, teaching, and socialising, primarily talking about ResourceLoader and Gadgets (extending functionality with JavaScript), the switch to Lua for templates, Wikidata, and Wikimedia Labs.

We want to bring 100-150 people together, including lots of people who have not attended such events before. User scripts, gadgets, API use, Toolserver, Wikimedia Labs, mobile, structured data, templates -- if you are into any of these things, we want you to come!

I also thought you might want to know about other upcoming events where you can learn more about MediaWiki customization and development, how to best use the web API for bots, and various upcoming features and changes. We'd love to have power users, bot maintainers and writers, and template makers at these events so we can all learn from each other and chat about what needs doing.

Check out the the developers' days preceding Wikimania in July in Washington, DC and our other events.

Best wishes! - Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation's Volunteer Development Coordinator. Please reply on my talk page, here or at mediawiki.org. Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 01:53, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

ADNP (gene)[edit]

This is an automated message from CorenSearchBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of ADNP (gene), and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.gopubmed.org/adnp.html.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material.
